Earwax: Earwax is protective of the delicate skin inside the ear canal so many doctors advise against trying to remove it with qtips. When too much earwax builds up, however, it can interfere with hearing and cause irritation, so a visit to a doctor for irrigation and removal is recommended. Best of luck!
